Care Homes in Topeka, KS

Residential care homes — sometimes called care homes, board and care homes, group homes, or personal care homes — are often houses in residential neighborhoods that are adapted, equipped, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually 10 or less. Similar to assisted living but in a smaller, more residential setting, these homes provide supervision, organized events, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). This means care homes can help with everyday routines but typically do not provide 24-hour skilled nursing assistance.

In the state of Kansas, the median monthly cost for a room in a care home is about $5,500. However, the cost of living in a care home depends largely on location. Since the homes are private residences, costs are tied to real estate value and therefore may vary greatly.

A Place for Mom’s local Senior Living Advisors can help you find the right residential care home in Topeka for you or your loved one.

The Mobile Health Clinic, a partner of the Washburn School of Nursing, aims to make healthcare more accessible and transparent for this population. Additionally, the Latino Leadership Collective amplifies Latino voices in business, and advocates for high-level representation across the city’s leading companies.

Topeka proudly showcases the city’s Black history as well. The state made history as the site of the landmark Brown v. Board of Education case, which ruled that “separate but equal” policies violated the U.S. Constitution. The city preserves Monroe Elementary School, which integrated due to this decision, as a commemorative museum.

Topeka is not considered friendly to members of the LGBTQ+ community. This means that members of the LGBTQ+ community may face discrimination in certain parts of the city. The Human Rights Campaign scored Topeka a zero out of 30 on its index for non-discrimination laws. The city does not prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in housing or employment. In spite of this, there is some support in the area. Equality House, which has made headlines for its location directly across from Westboro Baptist Church, is an LGBTQ+ resource center and a strong visual testament to LGBTQ+ pride. PFLAG, a national body of affirming support groups for LGBTQ+ youths and parents, also has a chapter in Topeka.
